When vape pens first went on the market, many industry analysts predicted they were the future of cannabis consumption. It seemed like the best of both worlds. The same amazing terpenes you’d get when smoked, but without burning carcinogens. For years the technology advanced as new products and extraction methods were introduced. For a while there, it seemed like almost every cannabis user I knew had a vape pen of some kind.
Then the summer of 2019 happened. It started with a few unsettling stories from the US. Several cases turned into several more. Eventually, there was a world-wide vape crisis and it appeared that THC vapes pens were too blame. Further research uncovered that it was likely Vitamin E used in terpene substitutes and thickeners. Suddenly everyone understood the importance of knowing what went into your vape cartridge. I had never really questioned what went into these cartridges. I blindly accepted that it was ‘honey oil’ or ‘THC oil’, but never bothered to look deeper than that. In my naivety, I assumed they were ALL being made by scientists in white coats in government-regulated laboratories. It turns out I was sorely mistaken.
Now, more reputable and trusted companies like Sovrin Extracts release their lab results to show what goes into their cartridges. This offers significant peace of mind to users concerned about what they are vaping.
Unfortunately, the fall out from the vape-illness crisis has seen a significant loss in confidence in the vape market. And you cannot blame the public. With the upcoming release of government-approved legal edibles, the future of cannabis vaping still remains up in the air. Whether they are released or not; the market has opened itself for a more transparent alternative.
Enter the Live Resin Vape Pen
I was lucky enough to travel to California a couple of months back. Despite the staggeringly high priced and heavily taxed cannabis prices, I was blown away when I discovered a live resin cartridge at the dispensary near my AirB&B. If you have no experience with live resin, it is a form of cannabis extract that is flash-frozen to preserve the terpenes and cannabinoid content, making it one of the most popular forms of concentrate on the market. It is unparalleled in regards to taste and has become a staple for dabbers worldwide.
If you had asked me before I saw one with my own eyes, I would have thought it was impossible to create a vape-able live resin. Well, leave it to innovative stoners with a lot of time on their hands and there is no telling what they create.
What Sets Live Resin Carts Apart
I was blown away by the amazing taste and potency of the live resin vape pens. I didn’t know it was possible to capture terpenes in vape form like that. After the initial elation of my discovery and getting way too high at Disneyland, I was overcome by disappointment as I realized I wouldn’t be able to find live resin vape pens back in Canada. I got the most out of my pen and enjoyed every pull. I stood at the departure drop-off at the airport before heading home, my girlfriend hiding her face in embarrassment as I created huge clouds as I got the last pulls from the pen before throwing it away.
When I got home I immediately got on the case. There had to be a way to find live resin vape pens in Canada…
And There Is!
We are so happy to be able to offer White Rhino Extracts Live Resin Vape Cartridges now. With a variety of flavours including Durban Poison, Watermelon, Blueberry and Pineapple Express we’ve got a strain for everyone. White Rhino Extracts prides themselves on their pure concentrates:
“You can trust in our pens. Because we create our products to treat our own founders, we are dedicated to the purity and safety of our products. Most other cannabis oil vape pens commonly contain additives including: Propylene Glycol (PG) and Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) which can result in exposure to harmful carcinogenic compounds when heated and inhaled. We pride ourselves on the fact that our products are expertly filtered and PG/PEG, VG, and MCT free for a superior quality that you can trust.” – White Rhino Extracts
The beauty of Live Resin is that it does not require additional terpenes or additives to make it more appealing. The White Rhino Live Resin vape pens and cartridges allow you to vape with more confidence in what you’re inhaling, while tasting as good as a dab of live resin every time. Be warned, the high can take you by surprise more than your typical CO2 or distillate pen, as the terpenes work with the high cannabinoid content to create an unreal entourage effect.
I’m not sure what the future of cannabis vaping holds, or what we will learn going forward, but I do know that I’ll be sticking to live resin vape pens as long as I can get them.
